At last we arrived at Tserendavaa’s Ail (encampment). I was still not well and had to rest for a while. His Ail of three gers was set up about 4Km from Chandman Village which I could see in the distance. This was one of his summer camps, a small stream was near by and a few others Ails were strewn along it. In the distance was the Jargalant Altai with its Monkh Tsas (Eternal snows) and the eternal blues sky. Tserendavaa was head of extended family consisting of his wife TsagaanTsogt, her mother, one of Tserendavaa’s brothers with his wife and new born child. There were many children, I counted about seven of Tserendavaa’s! The ger was pretty basic, but Buriad and I were welcomed in and treated very hospitably. I needed to rest a while and started recovery from the ordeal of the journey from Khovd to Chandman. Tserendavaa and his wife treated me for my shummuul bites with distilled fermented horses milk.
